ISLAMABAD: The federal government is likely to extend contract of Saifullah Chattha, Member Nepra Punjab for one year, well-informed sources told Business Recorder.
Chattha, who is former Secretary Water and Power, has rich experience in the energy sector and government wants him to stay for another year.
